Telephone conversation with President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko

August 30, 2017

In a telephone call to President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, Vladimir Putin congratulated Mr Lukashenko on his birthday and wished him good health and continued success.

The two presidents discussed current bilateral relations, the international agenda, and planned upcoming contacts.

Earlier in the day, Mr Putin sent Mr Lukashenko a message of greetings.

The Russian President’s message reads, in part:

“Over your years of work as head of state, you have earned great respect among your compatriots and considerable influence abroad as a responsible and far-sighted leader who has done much for Belarus’ socioeconomic development and to defend its foreign policy interests.

You have made a great personal contribution to strengthening the friendly ties between our countries and speeding up the mutually advantageous integration processes underway within the [Russia-Belarus] Union State and  the Eurasian Economic Union.

I reaffirm our readiness to continue our friendly dialogue and constructive work together on current matters on the bilateral, regional and international agendas. I am certain that this is in the fundamental interests of the brotherly peoples of Russia and Belarus”.
